NEW OR­LEANS

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - THE MOON -

A wild nightlife, fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory and un­usual food scene makes New Or­leans (pro­nounced ’nawl­ins if you want to sound lo­cal) one of Amer­ica’s most unique ci­ties

DO Dis­cover New Or­leans’ colour­ful his­tory with a French Quar­ter walk­ing tour dur­ing the day, and at night grab a to-go drink from a bar (the city has the most re­laxed liquor laws in the

US) and head to French­men Street, the hip ver­sion of the more touristy and tacky Bour­bon Street. Hit The Spot­ted Cat Mu­sic Club for live jazz and wan­der the French­men Art Mar­ket, which stays open un­til 1am.

EAT New Or­leans cui­sine is an in­ter­est­ing com­bi­na­tion of its French found­ing fa­thers, mass mi­gra­tion from the Caribbean and its po­si­tion on the Mis­sis­sippi River. NOLA is the place to sam­ple lo­cal dishes done to per­fec­tion. You can’t not or­der the gumbo. Visit emer­il­srestau­rants.com/nola-restau­rant.

STAY Opened in early 2016, hip ho­tel brand Ace Ho­tel’s New Or­leans prop­erty in­cor­po­rates the city’s thriv­ing mu­sic scene with a live mu­sic venue on site and a record player and mu­sic col­lec­tion in your room. Visit ace­ho­tel.com/newor­leans.

In­side the bustling NOLA.

Spend a lazy af­ter­noon by the pool at Ace Ho­tel.
